A firm of Birmingham-based tax specialists is celebrating its third birthday. Pett Franklin & Co, which has an office in Colmore Row, was founded by lawyer David Pett and William Franklin, a chartered accountant.
Both have a background with some of the largest firms in their sector – Mr Pett was formerly with Pinsents, where he helped develop the largest legal tax practice outside London. Mr Franklin counts Ernst & Young among previous employers.
The pair are supported by former Pinsents senior partner Julian Tonks, who worked alongside David Pett in developing the firm’s legal tax practice.
Pett Franklin & Co’s main expertise is advising on share incentive arrangements, and most of its clients are in London, the South East and Scotland.
David Pett said of the firm’s progress since 2009: “Given the success of our first three years in practice, we look forward to the next three with considerable anticipation. Despite the sluggish economy, we have succeeded in building a specialist tax practice with a genuinely nationwide client base.”
